It's great cringe TV, but beyond that, if you needed reassurance how bad relationships are with men, this show is for you. 99% of the men on this show are misogynists. What bothers me though is the fanbase of mostly women hating on women. There's so much hate for women, especially older white women, if they seek out younger men that are so obviously using them (somehow that's not a problem for the public, even when all of the young men are total misogynist losers, only that older women dare to be with what is usually unattractive young men). The amount of American people hating on American women for rejecting misogynist cultural norms in Africa and the Middle East is really sad. It's a trainwreck you can't stop watching.

I hate every single man on that show. The only exception is for Tiffany’s son Daniel. The rest can all be flushed and the world would be better off.

I think Alexi (the Israeli guy) is alright!

You know what, you’re right, I’ll agree with you there.

I’m so used to being angry at Ed, Colt, and all the other disgusting porn sick Incels that I forgot about him. 😅

I think Alexi treats Lauren like shit. He's emotionally unavailable. She's always been the one putting him on a pedastal.

Daniel is so sweet! I hate that Tiffany got her son calling Ronald "Dad" though. She set her child up for a lifetime of disappointment.

I agree! At least the dude seems to genuinely care for him, but what a damn mess.

I do hope he gets to America. Daniel and Tiffany have already invested so much in him, I hope it works out for them.

It's such a fascinating show. I only watched the complete first season, and the rest is all clips from YouTube. I'd watch the rest of it if I didn't have to pirate it.

I hate checking the online discussions for this show for the reasons you mentioned. I will say, I don't like the women on the show that much more than I like the men, it's just that I have way more compassion for them 9 times out of 10.

I feel really bad for the ones who get with African or Arab guys, and they seem to get the most hate. It's really frustrating to see the conversation about it because like, I'm sorry, but the cultures their fiance comes from is extremely different (ahem awful for women) and hard enough to understand, let alone get used to. And, again, I'm sorry, but I'd be surprised if the man was 100% upfront and clear with them on what to expect from their family/community before they got serious. I'd say 50% of it is because they don't want to freak her out, and the other 50% is because they don't know the half of it because they aren't women and don't give a damn about us, so they can't begin to imagine how challenging it is for a woman to live under their own culture (whereas they do feel social pressure but generally get to do what they want).

And how to people respond...? Get mad at the women for... experiencing culture shock?!

The newest episode shows Angela trying to recover from weight loss surgery, and her young Nigerian husband was upset about the fact that the doctors removed 2 pounds of fat per breast (she had giant breasts) off of this woman's lungs so she could breath better. The doctor was also African and mentioned that African men are so obsessed with volumptuous women to such an extent that there's a common problem of African women dying from breast cancer because they refuse to remove the breasts out of fear that African men will leave them. And that was just this week's episode. The rest of the time, this same Nigerian dude is desperately trying to make her (a 50 something year old woman) carry a baby for him, even though she had a uterine cancer scare. And beyond that, he believes women that women are supposed to wait on men hand and foot, to the point that he was embarrassed to be caught cooking in front of his family. But people don't hate him, they hate Angela for being a loud mouth, opinionated, funny and strong willed woman that yells sometimes.

I’ve never gotten the love for Michael. I’m not an Angela fan but he’s no saint. The storyline about the baby is ridiculous. Pretty sure they have the menopause in Nigeria and that if your dream in life was to be a father, you don’t start dating a 50 year old.

Lol I had no idea about this show at all , I just went to YouTube channel sorted by Most viewed videos and lmao it was CRINGY Af .

Some guy named Ed was in all most viewed videos with a slim woman , it was very cringe to watch the video lmao 😆

[–] Xact [OP] 1 points (+1|-0)

Yep, it's height cringe television. There's more losers in awkward situations than even what you saw with Ed.

Anyone sees how creepy No Neck Ed is? And that old white moid with the 19 year old Asian girl? So many creeps 🤢

[–] Xact [OP] 0 points (+0|-0)

Is the 19 year old girl you're talking about Nikki from an earlier season? If so, YES, I'm actually afraid for her and wish we could see what she's up to nowadays.

And Big Ed is disgusting. Plays the victim really well, meanwhile he's hitting on every young female under the sun.

Yooo I used to watch it! That season with Danielle and Mohammed was peak 😂

[–] Xact [OP] 0 points (+0|-0)

YES, that was peak! Looooord, have you seen them on the version of 90 Day Fiance called The Single Life? They actually delve into Mohammed's claim that Danielle's vagina stunk. It's fucking absurd peak trash television.

I love that show although in the UK they’ve now decided to make it only available on Discovery +, the money grubbers. It’s extremely exploitative and irresponsible: Paul and Geoffrey are straight up abusers while everybody else seems to have severe psychological issues.

Ed is an abomination. Kenny and Armando are probably the least problematic. Everybody rags on Natalie but Mike is an uncouth brute who is astonishingly passive aggressive. I quite like Yara but having a baby with Jovi is a bad move. He is terrible. As is Brandon, although Julia did not cover herself in glory attacking other cast members for having procedures.

I’m part of a Reddit sub that discusses the show and there is so much misogynistic hate for the women, as well as a lot of xenophobia. How dare foreigners think a trailer with a hole in the roof in the boondocks is not as great as their own country?!

It is quite depressing in many ways: they are pretty much all divorces waiting to happen but in the meantime these people add children into the mix hoping that marriage and babies might make a bad relationship good.
